A little known fact about Denmark is that during World Two, she stubbornly protected her Jewish population. Other occupied lands turned over their Jews and even assisted the Nazis, so much so, that Himmler commented about France that his own SS couldn't have done a better job. In the land of my ancestors, Czechoslovakia, the Slovaks in particular were ardent Jew-hunters.
But not the Danish; they continued their liberal human rights traditions even when faced with the full brutality of Adolf's Reich. Now, in 2008, it would seem that the tradition is continuing and the Danes provide a lonely voice in a sea of "progressive" milque-toast values. They understand full well the menace they (we) face.
What is so unique about their perspective and culture that they refuse to bow down to Islamists when so many Europeans are cowardly willing to appease for a mercurial peace?
In other words, why is it that the Danes have the steel whereas their pathetic neighbors do not?
